mode

select a mode in exec file

Calling Sequence

mode(k)
k = mode()

Description

Used exclusively inside an exec-file or a scilab function mode(k) allows to change the information displayed during the execution, depending on the value of k:

k = 0

The new variable values are displayed if required (see help on semicolon or comma).

k = -1

the exec file or scilab function executes silently. (this is the default value for scilab functions)

k = 2

default value on scilab prompt.

Please notices that mode does not used at prompt, only in an exec-file or a scilab function.

k = 1 or k = 3

each line of instructions is echoed preceded of the prompt(if possible). The new variable values are displayed if required. This is the default for exec files.

k = 4 or k = 7

The new variable values are displayed if required, each line of instructions is echoed (if possible) and a prompt (>>) is issued after each line waiting for a carriage return .

If carriage return follows character "p" the execution is paused (see pause).

k > 7

user mode. if you define your own mode, it is recommended to use a value > 100.

Line display is disabled for compiled scilab function (see comp). By default, Scilab functions are executed using the silent ("-1") mode.

functions in a function library are executed using "-1" mode.

Examples

// copy - paste in scilab

function example_mode(level_mode)
 mode(level_mode)
 a = 3
 disp(mode());
endfunction

mode(2)

example_mode(0)
example_mode(-1)
example_mode(2)
example_mode(1)
example_mode(3)
